Help with homework, please!

I have this assignment due in a couple of hours. I hoped my friend would be able to meet with me today to help but, she can't make it. I'd really appreciate if someone could help me. I fully understand every word here, it's just that I don't feel like enough information is given to properly answer the questions. I just feel confused and want to make sure that I'm putting the correct answers. Here's a picture of the paper: https://gyazo.com/dbccb480a3efe2e3d85fde4e081c2470 It's just a link to a screenshot.

Here's sort of where I am on each question: 1. Нет, здесь живут Медведевы. 2. Медведевы живут здесь. 3. Марина Петровна Медведев и Алесксандр Николаевич Медведев живут здесь. (I'm sure I don't have to include the last name twice though?)

Past that, I feel like I can't give accurate answers, I'm just confused. :(

The whole thing is just really hurting my head, I really hope someone is able to help me time time. Thanks in advance!

Спасибо! The rest of the questions really confuse me as well, I don't understand how I'm supposed to answer the questions without more detail about the scenario. Am I missing something, or is it a pretty vague question?

Very simple questions. :) Где? - Здесь.Without details. Try to answer the rest and I will check, if you want.

Okay, I'd really appreciate that.

  1. Марина Петровна и Александр Николаевич МедведевЫ (Is it that simple?)

  2. Его зовут Александр Николаевич Медведев.

  3. Нет, её зовут Марина Петровна Медведева.

  4. Нет, здесь живёт Марина Петровна. (Is must usage of живёт correct?)

  5. Нет, здесь живёт Александр Николаевич.

I honestly don't know why I found it so confusing. For some reason I thought it was asking who lived in the other apartments and the questions were originally more confusing in my mind. I guess you just telling me that it was very simple made it all appear quite simple.. Hopefully it's correct. I appreciate your help.

Медведевы = MedvedevS - both together.

4th. OK

5th. OK (You may drop Медведева here, because you were asked of name+patronymic only).

6th. Нет, Марина Петровна живёт здесь. It is important to place здесь in the end. Здесь is actually the answer, it is usually to be in the end of the sentence. If the question is, say, Кто здесь живёт? The answer will be Здесь живет Марина Петровна. Feel it? The most important thing tends to be said the last. Живёт is here OK.

7th. OK

It is rather straightworward. Imagine a picture of Ann and Bob in a red hut and a dozen of questions like "Where does Ann live?", "Who lives in the red hut", "Do Ann and Bob live in a hotel over there?", "Is Cindy the one who lives in the red hut?" and so on.

Boring but, I guess, necessary :)

I don't see asking for help clarifying something as cheating.
